Don't Be Fooled

-- by Dave Johnson

A Republican front-group called Freedoms Watch is saturating the TV with ads saying Iraq attacked the United States on 9/11.

Please watch the following response, and send it to friends and others. Take action - start your own"viral e-mail."

The Republican ads repeat the phrase "we're seeing results" and :things are getting better" and ask people to hold out for "victory." This is obvious focus-group-tested wording. The phrases have no meaning, but they sound good. It sounds reasonable to "hold out" when "things are getting better."

But it's just a lie.

What does "victory" mean? Who are we supposed to be fighting? How do we "win"?
